September 4, 2010, RICHMOND, Va (Calcutta Tube): Hurricane Earl has already caused enough damage. The U-Haul Company of Richmond has come forward to families whose homes or businesses have been damaged by Hurricane Earl. The U-Haul is offering 30 days of free storage to the affected families. In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people needing boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed – FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin. U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand when these storms come through.
“Hurricane Earl has already caused and will continue to cause tremendous damage to the communities we serve,” stated Amy Cox, president, U-Haul Company of Richmond. “I hope these efforts will provide assistance to families that truly need a helping hand if their homes or businesses were affected by this hurricane. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need.”
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following regional office to locate the participating storage facility nearest them.
